GREEN DAYS @ Pollutec 2016

CERN Laboratory of European Centre of Nuclear Research:


At CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, physicists and engineers are probing the fundamental structure of the universe. They use the world's largest and most complex scientific instruments to study the basic constituents of matter – the fundamental particles. Innovation and new technologies arise from this fundamental research.

During Pollutec Fair 2016, the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Rhône-Alpes region together with CERN invite you to discover the mysteries of the Universe and the work of the world’s biggest physics laboratory. A one day company mission is organised at CERN on November 28th. The visit includes:


- Visit of CERN Control Centre (CCC) 13:40-14:20h

A day in the CERN Control Centre:

The CERN Control Centre (CCC) is the nerve centre of the CERN beam systems. From this room, the experts prepare, monitor, adjust, and control the particle beams that circulate throughout the accelerator complex while ensuring that the services and the technical infrastructure work flawlessly. Buttons, screens, telephones, lights (but no sound): in the CCC, everything is ready to make it possible for the LHC to reach the unprecedented energies expected at Run 2.

More info:


- Visit of the ATLAS experiment 14:30-15:10h

The ATLAS Visitor Centre has a permanent exhibit with interactive screens outside the Control Room and a 3D movie which explains how the detector works and why the collaboration pursues its quest for fundamental knowledge. CERN also has two permanent exhibitions Universe of Particles and Microcosm that provide unique experiences in understanding the secrets of matter and exploring the mysteries of the universe.

More info:


- A presentation from the CERN Safety Unit 15:15-16:00h


- Visit of the Microcosm 16:00-17:00h
